[Publish] How to unshorten a link

Link shortening with buff.ly is available on all plans. However, the ability to change your link shortener, is only available on our Awesome and Business Plans. The ability to change your link shortener is not available on the Free Plan. More information on our plans can be found here.

Any links you paste into the composer will be automatically shortened, using the buff.ly link shortener by default. In some cases, you may prefer to unshorten a specific link, for example, if you wanted to display your website URL.

The new Tailored Posts composer includes an easy way to unshorten your links. Simply hover over the link and click Unshorten.

If you are still seeing the Simpler Composer, don't worry, the new Tailored Posts Composer will be landing in your dashboard in the next few weeks!  You can read more about it here.

If you are still seeing the Simple Composer, links can still be unshortened using the following keyboard shortcuts:

  • Mac: Hold down CMD ⌘ and click on the link
  • Windows: Hold down CTRL and click on the link
